The siege of Qatar is not a small matter and it has polarised the entire region, financial expert Shahid Farid told Qatar Urdu Radio’s live show Haqeeqat. “Before the siege on Qatar started, the entire GCC region felt like one country, but now the region is polarised and thousands of people are affected because of the blockade,” he said.

Farid works for the supervisory body of the Qatar Financial Centre and spoke in great detail about the rules and regulations implemented in Qatar to combat money laundering and financial terrorism as per the Combating Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Law No. 4 of 2010. “This is a very detailed law as per which Qatar’s National Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Committee functions,” he said. “The law was drafted strictly as per the international standards and Qatar takes great measures to ensure it is effectively implemented in the country.”

Haqeeqat, which is aimed at engaging and interacting with the large South Asian expatriate community in Qatar, is a joint venture of the Gulf Times and Qatar Media Corporation Urdu Radio. It is broadcast from Sunday to Thursday on FM107.
